I am so proud of the work I have done with The Louisville Paper, the monthly indie newspaper that sprang up last summer, in part, to fill the void created in arts and neighborhood reporting when our local daily gave a slew of reporters the boot. Matt Dobson & Stephanie Brothers have worked tirelessly to create a stylish, well-written, and increasingly indispensable addition to the Louisville media landscape. This August, the Paper turns one, and that calls for a party! (And apparently a really awesome .gif!!)
From the invite:
Join Creative Director Matt Dobson and Editor Stephanie Brothers, along with The Paper contributors and supporters, on Saturday, August 4 at Nachbar (969 Charles St. 40204) for The Paper's First Birthday Party! The party kicks off at 5 p.m., and is FREE and open to the public.
- Grind, Louisville's premier gourmet burger food truck, will be on site during the event.
- Desserts will be provided by Jamie's 14k Cupcakes.
- Local bands Tropical Trash and Discount Guns will provide the evening's musical entertainment.
- Guests will walk away with grab bags as well as have the chance to win one of several prizes from our wonderful sponsors. Prizes from: Actors Theatre of Louisville, The Root Cellar, City Scoot, Derby City Chop Shop, Foxhollow Farm, The Grind Truck, and Heine Bros. Coffee!
Seriously, how many birthday parties are this awesome? You get the gifts and don't even have to send a thank-you card to Aunt Linda for that ugly sweater.
I love these people and this publication. Good people doing good work. And I'm honored to be frequently featured alongside some of Louisville's best writers. (And sure, it doesn't hurt that I met The Guy on my first assignment from the Paper.) You can check out almost all of my Paper articles here.
Hope you can join us!
